UNITED STATES ARMY
THE CHIEF OF STAFF
26 Novemb"er 1954Dear General Lemnitzer:I am very happy to learn of the forthcoming merger othe Antiaircraft Association and the As~ociation of the UnitedStates Army, and of the union of their respective journals. Ibelieve that this merger will promote better understandingamong the members of all elements of the Army, and that itwill serve thereby to give us greater unity and strength.I am confident that the talent and enthusiasm which havemade possible the great contributions ofthe ANTIAIRCRAFTJOURNAL and the COMBAT FORCES JOURNAL in the past will,in combination, contribute even more to the benefit ofthe Armyin the future. Youhave my best wishes for every success inyour objective, which we all share, of making the United StatesArmy a single instrument of great strength and readiness toshoulder whatever responsibilities our nation may place upon
it.
